Variety is exclusively reporting that IFC Films have acquired the North American rights to Conor Allyn’s modern western drama No Man’s Land.
Written by Jake Allyn and directed by Conor Allyn, No Man’s Land focuses on the story of father-and son Texas ranchers turned border patrol vigilantes, Bill and Jackson Greer, that are thrust into chaos after Jackson accidentally kills a Mexican immigrant boy. When Bill tries to take the blame for his son, Jackson flees south on horseback across the Rio Grande. Chased by Texas Rangers and Mexican federales, Jackson embarks on a pilgrimage to seek forgiveness from the dead boy’s vengeful father only to fall in love with the land he was taught to hate.
Conor Allyn released a statement saying:
My brother and I set out to make a classic Western that asks the audience to cross the border within ourselves.
Arianna Bocco, EVP of acquisitions and productions of IFC Films, released a statement saying:
With their gripping new film, Conor and Jake Allyn have brought a fresh and complex perspective to the Western. Powered by a brilliant cast, ‘No Man’s Land’ is a prime example of new voices in filmmaking that we’re committed to supporting.
Victor Almeida and Joel Shapiro serve as producers on the film, with Luke Daniels, Simon Fawcett, Frank Grillo and Alan Pao serving as executive producers.
According to the report, IFC Films intend to release the film sometime in 2021.
